Magazine availability abroad

Post by czechrover » Mon Apr 08, 2019 7:34 am

Hi,

I was just wondering if there any members here from Germany who buy the magazine in store? I've checked everywhere here in the Czech Republic and I can only get it online which means I'll be waiting the same amount of time as if I subscribed through myfavouritemags (awful). If there's a stockist (game shop etc) that sells the mag I'd drive over to Dresden for it.

Thanks for any info

I've seen the mag in Austria but it was some German Retro Gamer version :D

German here, so I'll try to explain:

- there is indeed a German version of Retro Gamer whit a different schedule: instead of one issue every month, they do one every 2-3 months and it costs quite a bit more, but has something like 180 pages and not just translated content, but a decent amount of new articles written specifically for them.

- the original UK version of Retro Gamer can be bought (at least before #206, I suspect the "not sold expect online" situation is valid everywhere), but basically only in bigger airports or railroad stations where international press is present, but to a hugely inflated price - I think 13 or 14 Euros. I imagine it's possible you could get in Dresden's central station for example, but I honestly coulddn't say for sure (I'm living hunders of kilometers away).

- I agree with you about the delivery times for subscriptions from Future in general and RG especially are aweful, but in my experience every time I oredered a single issue, it arrived within roughly 7-10 after dispatch (which mostly happens 1-2 days after ordering, but sometimes can take noticeably longer) - so might be worth a try.

Thanks...I've resubscribed now online. I also noticed that single issues come a lot quicker. Strange.
